Secrets For Choosing And Using Rugs

 

Follow these five tips from Kimberly Leach, a designer with FLOR in the trendy Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Georgetown, to get the most bang for your rug bucks:

Measure Your Space

Use painter’s tape to mark the boundaries of the rug size you’re envisioning. This will give you a great visual reference that will help you select the perfect size.

Adjust With Color

A rug’s color palette can influence the perceived amount of light and space in a room. Decorating a dark room? Go with a warm-colored rug, yellows, oranges or reds, to enhance the space. Lighter-colored rugs will make the space feel more open while darker rugs will provide a more intimate setting.

Keep Mood In Mind

Think about what kind of role you want the rug to play in your space and what mood you want to convey. If you want to make a statement, select your rug first and design around it. But, if you’d like the rug to be an accent, make sure it compliments other design elements in the room such as color.

Don’t Let Patterns Scare You

There’s a trick to using patterns. Pick a color theme and use big swatches of color to anchor the spaces. Keep oversized patterns in check by limiting them to well-defined spaces and balancing with solid walls, furnishings or rugs.

See-Throughs Open Up The Space

Try incorporating Lucite or open-weave materials into the room, they’ll help keep a light and airy feeling. If the area doubles as an entry, keep the two separated and well-defined with rugs for each space in a unifying color theme so both spaces coexist in harmony.
